Does anyone know if there will be a 2011 season opener bar crawl? Thanks.



Yes, it's on facebook!!

Okay so we have many people around here who have done this many times, usually these have gone off without a hitch, good times had by all, new friends made, new watering holes experienced, pleasantries spread throughout downtown Newark. My question is this, what should this years lineup include? This was the lineup from last seasons opening night crawl.

Start Time 1:30PM
1. Newark Penn Station Bar (Blue Comet) (Meeting Place, leaving around 1:45-2:15PM)
2. Kilkenny's Irish Pub - 27 Central Ave
3. Nick's - 28 Central Ave
4. McGovern's Irish Pub - 58 New Street
5. Port 44 - 44 Commerce Street
6. Hell's Kitchen - 150 Lafayette St
7. Brick City Bar & Grill - Across the street from Pru Center
8. Prudential Center

I was thinking of switching out Brick City for Edison Ale House. Any suggestions? questions? complaints? Let me know.

Does anyone have a link to the Pub Crawl FB group? We should also probably give it its own thread (we always did in the past)

Great beer, spotty service and terrible food mixed with owners who seem to have no clue or experience on running a restaurant lead to that. I hope they re-open with more experienced owners who invest more in the kitchen while keeping the brewmaster.

Beer selection seemed solid...the inside of the bar was nice. Service when I went seemed OK, but the food was pretty mediocre and VERY overpriced. Still thought they were getting by decently though.

Spot on analysis.. I went to Iron Hill down in Moorestown and it reaffirms how having good food, in addition to good craft beers, is the key to success.. No one has time to grab drinks in one spot and then food in another (and it was too painful to overpay for mediocre food)

Wait so Port 44 really did close down? If so I hope that new Edison Ale House has a good beer selection.

Makes sense too.. Edison Ale House is another craft beer place, with what I've heard is actually good food, and it's next to the arena.. Why go all the way to Port 44, even if it's still relatively close

Exactly. A lot of Brewpubs have this thing when it comes to their food. It is either awful and overpriced, or too pretentious and over priced. There have been very few brewpubs that I have been to where both the beer and food was great at a decent price.

EAH sounds like a good place and look forward to it. However over the weekend they released their menu on Facebook and it looks to be a little pricey for personal pizza and burgers.

Traditional small (personal) pizza is $14
Edison Wings- $11
Calamari- $12
Penne Vodka- $14
Classic Burger $12


Just to name a few prices...
